[audio]Bernard Shaw's CAPTAIN BRASSBOUND'S CONVERSION - George Bernard Shaw
The final in a series of BBC broadcasts with Dame Sybil Thorndike recreating favorite stage roles. This October 1967 broadcast of an 1899 Bernard Shaw play (premiered 1900 - 1907 on Broadway) with one of Shaw's classic "strong women" encountering and overcoming problems with the foibles of European and Arabic men is possibly more timely (if less believable) today than when it first premiered. It was most recently on Broadway with Ingrid Bergman and Pernell Roberts in 1972.

Bernard Shaw's 1906 play (on Broadway in 1915, 1927 and 1941 before being filmed in a nice 1958 version with many old Shavian hands involved) deals with a classic conflict of managing medical resources in a triage situation centering on the then timely topic of TB (consumption). Shaw doesn't let pass his best satiric jibes at a medical profession he believed as prone as any other industry to become blinded by the biases of its specialties - but his central plot turns on the ethical quandary of b...
